Nearly a decade after his debut title, Santo de la Pata Alzada: Poems from the Queer/Xicano/Positive Pen (Evelyn Street Press), Lorenzo Herrera y Lozano returns with a collection of poems exploring queer Xicano desires, literal and mythical homeland(s), and brown bodies in perpetually active displacement. Sitting at the intersectional multiplicities of reminisced childhood pop culture, coquettishly amorphous Xicanidad, and defiantly claimed Mexicanidad, Amorcito Maricón basks in the inherent politic, inevitable heartbreak, and inescapable draw of brown on brown desire. Un libro para maricones and those who love us.
